Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], April 06: Thousands of enthusiastic runners took to the streets of Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC), Mumbai, to participate in the ‘IIFL JITO Ahimsa Run Powered by Torrent Group’ on April 2nd, 2023. This unique race was held to spread the message of peace and non-violence among people across the world. The event kicked off at MMRDA Ground, with the race passing through various corporate neighbourhoods across BKC before the runners finally circled back to the finish line.
